Lots of stuf can cause it including sediment or a blocked supply line

With no air in the system anywhere, there would be nothing to hold pressure, so the slightest leak would cause the system to go to zero.

Stopped at all faucets? Didn't pay the water bill. If in cold climate, the line from the outside to probably the water heater has probably frozen.

Air in the water lines to the upstairs. Not enough water pressure.

Some causes for a sudden water pressure drop: 1) A big leak on the main supply line. 2) one or more faucets or shower heads opened on the same water line. 3) A utility water pump failure.

If the pipes are old, it's most likely that corrosion has built up inside them. Some of this buildup may have become dislodged and clogged the path to the low-pressure faucet.

I would purchase a Watt water pressure guage from your local home improvement or hardware store and check your water pressure at your faucet. If water pressure is greater than 40-45psi your regulator needs to be turned down where the water comes into the house.

It will not cause low water pressure. It will cause a loss of heated water because the heater will not be able to recover fast enough. It has nothing to do with pressure.

Voltage pushes current through a circuit. A good example of how this works would be water pressure and flow. your faucets at home as long as they are closed have water pressure on them but no flow. You open a faucett and the water starts flowing pushed by the pressure. The voltage is represented by the water pressure and the Current (amps) is represented by the water flow.

There is no water, or water pressure reaching the faucet. This could be that your local water service was shut off; either from no payment, or to fix water lines - to, failure of your well (if you are on a well service) or a rupture of your main supply pipe (of such a severalty that you are getting no pressure).

Do all the faucets do this or just one. if its just one faucet its a problem with this fauset. If its all the faucets in the home its a problem with the main water line coming into your home.

Most of the newer kitchen faucets have "flow restrictors" to limit water use.

There are several possibilities. The 2 most common would be the water heater needs replacing, or you need a repipe.

A clogged aerator on the end of the faucet would cause the water flow to decrease in that faucet.

perhaps the water heater is clogged with lime deposits.. ? but I have no clue

why would my faucet water come out fast than slow

Probably someone or something else using water that drops the pressure. The shower head will be a lot more sensitive to pressure drops than other faucets in the house.

This could be a number of issues from the washer expanding due to over use of time which would restrict the flow of water. Or it could mean that the water pipe itself is clogged up and may need replacement

The only thing that could cause this is outside air has leaked into the house and is cooling off the pipes. If the water heater is producing the temp that is set on the thermostat, then it will come out the same temp everywhere, unless you just think the faucets are getting hotter. If your water heater is electric, the elements could be getting bad or dirty from hard water,which will cause inefficient heating. But besides this,only cold air could cause the pipes to cool.
